Products from Fabiano Raposa
In the beautiful south of Brazil, Osvaldo, a young luthier, continues the life's work of Fabiano Raposa in his Atelier de Percussão. For decades, the handmade Raposa pandeiros were among the top pandeiro models. Made with great attention to detail individually in a small workshop to the highest quality. Exemplary craftsmanship! Osvaldo is also a pandeirista himself, so he knows exactly what it takes to make a pandeiro in this category.
You can tell right away that the pandeiros have been made with the greatest care and an extraordinary eye for detail. Precious woods are used for the frames of the instruments, which help to shape the later sound characteristics of the pandeiros. The choice of skins is also made according to strict criteria, ensuring that the instruments have a subtle and clear sound.
Raposa's basic idea thus lives on in Osvaldo's studio: playing with high-quality and beautiful instruments is simply much more fun and it is also easier to make good music. The brand of the instruments remains Fabiano Raposa's heritage. Anyone who watches Osvaldo at work will quickly realise that he is the right person to step in Raposa's shoes.
